Siebert Realty: Anchored in History

Following the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962, which damaged many structures located along the coast of Virginia, many owners in the Sandbridge Beach area realized that there was a need for someone to check on their family vacation homes when they were unable to make the journey themselves. That’s where the story of incredible, local property managers begins in Sandbridge.

My grandfather, Jack W. Siebert, became a Real Estate Broker in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1963 and co-founded Warren, Siebert, Page Realty in Norfolk, VA not long after in 1964. Although Warren, Siebert, Page was not the very first nor the only property manager in the Sandbridge area, they still wanted to make owning property on that small stretch of beach a breeze when owners were away!

In 1973, Jack decided to establish a branch office at Sandbridge Beach to be more accessible in the area. The business operated as Warren, Siebert, Page until Jack along with his wife and business partner, Jean, rebranded the business as Siebert Realty in 1980. Embracing the unique friendliness of Sandbridge, Jack and Jean wove this culture into a business that created the mission of providing guests with great memories, owners with excellence, team members with camaraderie, and doing it all with integrity and great fun!

Since 1980, Siebert Realty has been one of the leading property managers in Virginia Beach. Jack and Jean’s ability to look ahead to the future and consider what is best for our owners, guests, and community members has set us apart from the competition. Each member of Team Siebert understands the core values that Siebert Realty has and brings individualized expertise to provide superior service. As a property manager, we realize that properties are valuable investments as well as precious pieces of family history and we are proud to offer exceptional management services that reflect that respect and understanding.

Although my father, Patrick Keenan, worked at Siebert Realty for many years while growing up in Sandbridge, he began working alongside his mother, Jean, in 2003. Since 2003, he moved naturally from the role of Maintenance Supervisor, to General Manager, and finally took over as Owner and President of Siebert Realty in 2019 after the passing of Jean that April. Patrick continues to uphold the values and mission on which Jean and Jack based their business and has grown it to what it is today! Patrick’s sister, Joanne Keenan Young, and I both work as part of Team Siebert and are unendingly proud of the environment that Jack, Jean, and Patrick have cultivated over the past 60 years.

Being a locally owned, multi-generational, family business has given us the opportunity to serve owners and guests like no one else in the Sandbridge area. Siebert Realty is personal and intentional with our owners and their homes’ history. We provide the expertise and knowledge of the unique market that Sandbridge provides in the vacation industry, and we are proud of our legacy in southern Virginia Beach. We are grateful for the opportunities that Sandbridge has provided to us, and we will aim to continue to do right by our owners, guests, and community in the years to come.

A Sandbridge Family Tradition

We have many families who have turned an initial Sandbridge visit into an annual tradition. The surf, sun, and sheer beauty of the area is the perfect place to gather with loved ones and spend quality time together.

Olivia Benson’s family began their Sandbridge tradition when she was less than a year old. Year after year the family returned to our little slice of paradise to make priceless memories. One of Olivia’s favorite Sandbridge memories is from 2018. On the very same beach she grew up visiting, her (now) husband proposed! Her family was staying in Silver Sands and her cousins were staying nearby in another rental property; “We were able to come share the news with all of my cousins and aunts and uncles which was SO special! The year after, we rode on bikes down to the exact place we got engaged!”

The Benson family has since added a new beach buddy—Olivia and her husband now get to share the magic of Sandbridge with their son! We are ecstatic Olivia is able to add another generation to such an awesome family tradition.

Sandbridge is an incredible place, and we are very thankful we can be a part of your family traditions. We love seeing photos of families and friends creating memories at the beach! Feel free to share your favorite Sandbridge stories with us.
